Mariah Carey confirms her romance with back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka
Less than two months has passed after her split from fiance James Packer but Mariah Carey has apparently found love again with long-time friend and dancer Bryan Tanaka.
The singer and the Australian businessman ended their engagement in September after a fight while on vacation in Greece. On Monday (Nov28), the “We Belong Together” singer confirmed her new love in an unexpected photo shoot on the beach in Maui, Hawaii.
In one of the pictures, Carey (46) wraps her leg around Bryan (33) as they kiss on the mouth. Other shots show Mariah in a black cut-out swimsuit and black and gold sarong, getting a piggy back ride from her boyfriend.
Tanaka has been one of the longest serving dancers on Mariah’s tour and they were said to share a special bond. Romance has since blossomed between the pair and some gossip magazines reported several times that Packer was so jealous of Tanaka that he used his influence in the casino world to have him banned from Caesar’s Palace, where Carey has a residency.
